    Congratulations WW7 and Wifey.
    Good luck with everything bro. Once you get the jacuzzi, pool table, big screen TV, mini bar and full size gym in let us know. That way we can make plans for the housewarming party. Haaa. dont we all wish we were so lucky. But the lotto here is a cool 70 mill so if I win ill invite you all to my new fully decked out pad. But until then Im happy with what Ive got for now. Again congratulation bro.

    Youll see, its funny. I remember when I got my house. I was always running around turning lights off, ****ing with and AC cleaning everything... whatever I could to conserve and save. Now its like just leave the back door open for the dog. and ill clean up later.
    ****ing electric bill has gone from about 180 to 290 a month.

    I think you took this "homebrewing" thing a little too literally

    Congrats Jake! I remember when I first moved in to mine 6yrs ago I was about 22-23 yrs old. The privacy was great and I had my own family. I remember sitting in my sofa, listening to my stereo, drinking my beer listening to CCR at the end of the day. Oh how peaceful it was. Enough reminiscing, glad you have your own place and good luck. I'm also down for the kegger.
